Water supply


Successful agriculture is dependent upon farmers having sufficient access to water. Grundfos supplies pumps for all potential sources of irrigation water, whether groundwater extracted from springs or by using wells, surface water drawn from rivers, canals, lakes or reservoirs or non-conventional sources such as treated wastewater, desalinated water, drainage water, or reclaimed water generally.

The water source makes a difference to the pump that should be selected. Deep-well submersible pumps and turbine pumps are specially designed to lift water from several hundred feet underground, and a variety of pumps can be used when drawing surface water.

Pumping solutions include robust and efficient SP submersible multistage pumps for bore water abstraction, powerful HS/HSE single or two-stage horizontal split-case pumps and NK/NKE single-stage end-suction pumps at the surface water intake and Vertical Turbine Pumps at the intake basin. The Grundfos Hydro MPC booster system brings together the CR pump – the most reliable and efficient centrifugal multistage pump available on the market – with the ability to control many pumps operating in parallel with great accuracy.

Grundfos has prepared the "Irrigation Pump Handbook", a comprehensive presentation of pumps for irrigation. Contact Grundfos for more information.

Irrigation pump handbook

This Irrigation Pump Handbook is a comprehensive presentation of modern irrigation. The aim is not to provide a ‘how-to’ guide to building an irrigation system; rather it is to explain why an irrigation system is complex, and to make that complexity understandable.


We’d like to hear from you.
